zx2c4 at bionicman:~$ apt-cache show linux-image-oem | grep Provides
zx2c4 at bionicman:~$ apt-cache show linux-image-generic | grep Provides
Provides: wireguard-modules (= 1.0.20200611-1ubuntu1~18.04.1),
zfs-modules (= 0.7.5-1ubuntu16.9)

Indeed looks like maybe this was left out of linux-image-oem? That's
surprising, especially given the trials and tribulations we went
through initially to get this deployed to Dell customers.
